Ben Affleck Batman and Batmobile hits the intrawebs
The internet got their first look at the new Batman today, as director Zack Snyder Tweeted some official (or perhaps “official unofficial”) shots. The Dark Knight is apparently alive and well in the Superman universe, with Affleck having received the cape and cowl from Bale, Keaton, Clooney, Kilmer, West and others before him.
The Man of Steel sequel, running under the possible Batman vs. Superman name, has had fans scouring the web for any level of detail for some time. Kevin Smith shared his thoughts, but no specifics, and just those little tidbits have circled the intrawebs, with speculation running wild. Now, finally, we get a look at the Batsuit, the Batmobile, and Ben Affleck in the mask.
The picture isn’t exactly high-res, so there’s still room for speculation. And there are intentional filters and treatments to obscure details of the photo. But we’re at least able to see a familiar looking pointy-eared hero, in a costume design that looks somewhere between Batman Begins and Dark Knight — not quite as modular as the latter, but not quite as rubbery as the former.
The Batmobile has a similar hybrid look to it, resembling a cross between the Tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s movies, and the 1989 Batman design that Tim Burton championed.
